Game Theory Evolving: A Problem-Centered Introduction to Modeling Strategic Interaction
And unlike many other game theorists, Gintis does not shy away from agent-based models, which are discussed in various places. Where expert reviewers have heralded the quality the material of the first edition, a reader used to more traditional approaches to textbooks was likely to be frustrated by its lack of a structured story and a somewhat chaotic overall impression.
First, it reflects game theory’s expansion into such areas as cooperation in teams, networks, the evolution and diffusion of preferences, the connection between biology and economics, artificial life simulations, and experimental economics. Solutions to many problems are provided at the end of the book.

Kevin Zollman rated it really liked it Hrrbert 22, Reflecting the growing consensus that in many important contexts outside of anonymous markets, human behavior is not well described by classical “rationality,” Gintis shows students how to apply game theory to model how people behave in ways that reflect the special nature of human sociality and individuality.

This second edition starts with two chapters on probability theory, decision theory, and Bayesian decision theory, providing foundations for the third chapter in which the basic concepts of game theory are introduced. This comprehensive range of topics, including both classic game theory and system dynamics, sets this book apart from many of its competitors who typically focus on one of both.
In the final quarter of the book, gkntis emphasis shifts to topics characteristic of evolutionary game theory: Among the topics that have been sacrificed are behavioral game theory and learning in games with incomplete information at least as dedicated chapters; some of these topics do reappear briefly in other chapters.
